ARAPAHOE, Colo. — The Arapahoe County district attorney charged a 17-year-old as an adult Thursday in connection with the shooting of a Cherry Hills Village Police Department officer and a home burglary.

Angelo Alston, 17, faces 32 criminal charges, including attempted murder, according to the district attorney’s office. Six of the charges are sentence enhancers, which could be used to argue for a longer prison term if Alston is convicted. Alston remains in custody on a $1 million bond.

The 32 counts include attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, three counts of second-degree kidnapping, five counts of first-degree burglary and robbery, the district attorney’s office said.

Cherry Hills officer Cory Sack was shot once in each leg while responding to an Aug. 20 burglary call at a home near Sedgwick Drive and Hampden Avenue. He entered the home through the front door and someone opened fire. Sack returned fire, but it is unclear if anyone was struck by his shots, according to earlier reports.

Sack has been with the department for seven years. He has undergone four surgeries, but is expected to recover from his injuries, the police department has said.

Alston’s next court hearing will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Arapahoe County District Court. Under Colorado law, he can request a hearing before a judge to ask that his case be sent back to juvenile court.
